START: Theatre & Voice Program

At StarStruck we believe in providing an environment where students continue to be appropriately challenged, and build the beginnings of a life-long love of dance, music, and theatre. Our classes are designed to foster creativity, build self-esteem, and instill self-confidence through exploration in the arts. They provide a basis for communication, leading to life long skills that will prove invaluable whatever life choices they make.

Policies

LATE POLICY: We ask that you drop your child off no earlier than 5 minutes before the class period; this time is important for the teacher to prep.

Please be prompt at picking up your child from class. Being late has a huge impact on our staff. All of our teachers are also performers and must get to nightly rehearsals themselves and StarStruck does not have resources for aftercare. We understand that traffic and other activities can be an issue, but please plan accordingly.

There is a 10-minute grace period after class with a $2.00 fee for every minute thereafter.

Seussical the Musical: Transporting audiences from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus, the Cat in the Hat, our narrator, tells the story of Horton, an elephant who discovers a speck of dust containing tiny people called the Whos, including Jojo, a Who child, who gets in trouble for thinking too many “thinks.” Horton’s challenge is twofold – not only must he protect the Whos from a world of naysayers and dangers, but he must also guard an abandoned egg that’s been left in his care by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird. Although Horton faces ridicule, danger, kidnapping and a trial, the intrepid Gertrude McFuzz never loses faith in him. Ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family and community are challenged and emerge triumphant!

Have fun while developing your confidence, self-esteem and acting skills, all while rehearsing a 45 minute play. Actors will receive training in comedic timing, projection and characterization. This is a great opportunity for young actors to experience putting on a show from start-to-finish. The class will culminate with two performances for family and friends.

Play: “Show & Spell”: Five middle schoolers take on overzealous parents, crazy coaches, and nostalgic relatives as they prepare for the annual spelling bee in this insightful comedy for young actors. With contestants that range from an unflappable cheerleader who cheers all her words to the anxiety-prone daughter of a movie star, spelling the words correctly may be the least of these kids’ worries. This play wonderfully illustrates the pressure that kids feel to compete, and the family support that makes it all bearable.
